UAE to Increase Use of Treated Waste Water

The UAE plans to increase its use of treated waste water , which is about half as cheap to produce than desalinated water.

Yet, almost half of it is currently being dumped into the sea instead of using it for landscaping or planting crops.

Beside landscaping, Golf courses and district cooling, highly treated waste water could also be used to plant crops, at least fodder crops. To balance out peaks and troughs in agricultural water consumption a storage system for treated waste water is suggested.
